Personal profile

Research Statement

I am a mixed methods researcher experienced in longitudinal cohort studies, Cochrane systematic reviews, feasibility, pilot and randomised controlled trials of interventions and qualitative methods.

 

 

Research interests

My research interests focus broadly on adolescent development, substance abuse and mental health. Current research interests include building resilience in children living with parental substance abuse; investigating the impact of parental substance abuse on child outcomes (substance use, mental health, educational outcomes); shared education; and supported decision making among those with mental ill health or learning disabilities.
